by trying to lean against the forces of technological and economic change. and it seems to me that's what this debate's about. schoumacher: with industry and jobs on the line, pressure mounted on president jimmy carter. americans deserve protection from predatory pricing practices from abroad, but congressman dingell might lead congress to pass outright quotas, which could wreck the complex and delicate framework of world trade. as the crisis reached its peak, carter turned to one of the country's experts on international trade and finance, deputy treasury secretary anthony solomon. solomon's solution -- the trigger price mechanism. use the japanese production price as the trigger for starting dumping investigations. everybody in the world accepted the fact that japanese cost production were the lowest in the world. and therefore, if you sold below that, then there was good grounds fon that you were dumping, you were not covering your cost of production, which was the finition under the law. the idea was to meet their legitimate complnt about dumping in a way that would be less disruptiv
